right, fixed in my copy ...

Right ... I consider currently to pre-define a 10.2 project inside of the
packages as a base, but what about such a description:

4. Setup initial distributions

The OBS does need some base projects and packages to start the building. You
setup it for example in this way to build for openSUSE 10.2:

* Create an "openSUSE:10.2" project
* Add a repository, for example called "standard"
A resulting project xml file should look alike this one:

<project name="openSUSE:10.2">
<repository status='disabled' name='standard'>
<title>the openSUSE 10.2 distribution</title>

The status='disabled' will stop any builds inside of this project, but it can
be used
anyway as a base in other projects.

Afterwards you need to copy the rpms from the base distribution to the
directory. You can create the directory, if it does not exist. After copying
all i586 and noarch rpms inside of it you need to trigger the reading of the
directory of the scheduler. The easiest way to achieve this is to restart it.

Last but not least you need to copy the distribution configuration to define
a base distribution needs to get setup. These configurations for SUSE are part
of the
build rpm.

# cp /usr/lib/build/configs/sl10.2.conf /srv/obs/projects/openSUSE:10.2.conf

The project is now ready to be used as a base for other projects.
